CRESTVIEW — North Okaloosa residents can celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah on Thursday during Noel Night at the Crestview Public Library.

Families can participate in a scavenger hunt and have the opportunity to meet and have photographs with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.

In addition, attendees can make a snowman Christmas tree ornament or a craft stick-based kinara — the traditional candle holder in Kwanzaa celebrations — or a menorah — the traditional lamp stand in Hanukkah celebrations — event organizer Heather Nitzel said

Soloist J.R. Lewis, Emmanuel Baptist Church's worship music team and Chanticleer, Crestview High School's elite mixed show choir, will provide entertainment.

Snacks and refreshments, including freshly baked cookies from the Friends of the Library organization, will be available. 

The event is free, and library staffers will sell $1 raffle tickets for the chance to win a Christmas candle painting by local artist Deni K. Proceeds will help pay for new books.

Library staff also will collect canned food items for the Sharing and Caring food pantry in Crestview, Nitzel said.
